Its the first After Dark of the year and Aaron and I have a whole heap of fuckery to wade through. Not only did we talk about the various sex tech debuting at CES 2015 but we talked about what apps and doodads will help your future relationship.
Yeah, that’s a thing that several people agreed to do. Yes, that’s a woman holding a sign with Eric Garner’s last words misspelled on them. You can hear me flip out below
I’m so excited that TWiB After Dark has made it through 50 amazing episodes! Thank you all so much for listening and supporting. We welcomed two very special guests for this episode both members of the Women of Color Sexual Health Network , Aida Manduley (@neuronbomb) and Tamara Williams Van Horn (@TamVanHorn).
We talked about the new UK porn bans, 3-D printed sex toys, and had an in depth discussion on supporting and boosting the voices of women of color in the sexual heath field and how our absence directly impacts society’s view on human sexuality.
This week I had the pleaser of co-hosting TWiB After Dark with the actress and TWIB contributor Pia Glenn! Let me tell ya’ll about Pia, she’s awesome she is proof that we are all made of stars. ( Of course me and you are made of that trash planet from Transformers the Movie, she is made from a planet that’s all diamonds like that episode of Dr. Who) She is genetically superior being who is gracing us with the chance to be in her presence.
It wasn’t just the ghastly way they were discovered or the brutal way they were murdered it the reaction of civvies and the news media at large. Several news sources published their mug shots, identified them only as strippers in that demeaning tone that stopped just short of ‘they asked for it’.

Students around the country staged a #HandsUpWalkOut on the day Michael Brown was laid to rest. Brown would have started his freshman year at a local trade college on Aug 9 had he not been shot six times by police officer Darren Wilson. Brown was autopsied thrice before his funeral.
Activists from Freedom Side, Dream Defenders, and Hands Up United coordinated the event to show solidarity with the Brown family and others slain by police. According to a #HandsUpWalkOut action toolkit available on HandsUpUnited.org, the walkouts are not protests or rallies, but “an event to mourn the loss of community members.” Organizers supplied a list of suggested post-walkout activities, such as reading names of the deceased, asking participants to voice their feelings and inquire about the emotional well-being of fellow students, and singing of “freedom songs.”
I had the distinct honor of being a panelist at this year’s Theorizing the Web conference which too place in Brooklyn NY April 25& 26th. My panel “Sex Work and the Web, was moderated by the amazing Melissa Gira Grant, author of Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work . My fellow panelists included Emma Caterine of Red Umbrella Project , adult film actress and writer Stoya, and CEO and owner of Hookonline Hawk Kinkaid. You can watch the panel here :
Our panel dealt with sex workers and clients adapting to new digital technology and the hardships or progress gained by moving into a digital space. We took questions both from the live audience and from twitter. Continue reading “Sex, Sex Work and the Web #TtW14”
Many moons ago I got an interesting Ask in my tumblr. While this submission wasn’t actually a question so much as a person trying to BLOW MY MIND with their amazing logic. I thought I should share it.
“The porn industry is male dominated (made up primarily of male pornographers/film directors/producers/editors/casting directors) and is geared towards a straight male audience. Just because some women and some queer individuals consume pornographic content (much of which is becoming increasingly violent and aggressive, especially towards women) does not make it ‘feminist,’ or ‘ethical.'”
Folks are clutching their pearls after married adult Beyoncé allegedly spent over $6,000 USD on Boxing Day at sex shop Babeland New York. Let me tell you, its REALLY easy to drop term bill or two there. Personally I love Babeland, they’re the only brick and mortar sex shop I recommend in my area, I also know that while welcoming to beginners it’s a candy shop for those of us with genitals that require nothing but the best.
As I wrote before every industry has its luxury items, sex toys are no different. If you’re Beyoncé are you going to settle for Kia Sport of vibrators or an Ashton Martin? Exactly. How far could six grand take you? Well the express lane, I’m talking maybe 10 items or less. Here’s 3 dream baskets for Mrs and Mr. Carter Knowles. Continue reading “Beyoncé Cums Fancy, as Expected.”
2013 was a bag dicks. If 2013 was a frail old man I would gently push him so he would fall down, while he was on the ground I would glare at him as a poked him with a blunt stick. 2013 for me was the human experience equivalent of Drake’s eyebrows. You might have gathered from the whopping 10 posts I made all year that shit was somewhat real for me this year. 2013 taught me that yes, failure is an option.

I was a guest on the always hilarious The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast, hosted by Rod and Karen. I had such a fun time talking about dongs, packing cocks and sitting at the dojo of the net troll master. If there is one thing you will learn from this podcast is “Don’t start none, won’t be none”, fortunately for the listening audience a very unlucky trio of dudebros learns that lesson the hard way.
Twitter is where your childhood and celebrity crushes go to die, resurrect like Romero zombie and bite you right in the feels. When Kal Penn came out as a supporter of NYC’s Stop and Frisk and the racist ideology behind it I was forced to give up my teenaged dreams of him one day touching my heart and dick punching my cervix.
My reaction to his tweets, were emotional to say the least. I invite you to the theatre of my mind as I went through al the stages of grief when your shows his ass as a bigot apologist. By friendly request I’ve storyfied my break down.
Earlier this afternoon I received a message from google like many adult bloggers that use and once used the platform. Good is updating it TOS and has decided that is will not host blogs with adult ads. I can’t say that I’m too shocked I expected an announcement like this right after google put an axe on adult apps for the upcoming google Glass.
Yellow Face isn’t okay, not on stage, not on Halloween and not in film – and yes that includes porn. So if you are going to have any hand in creating a porn “parody” of smash hit show that has a fan favorite character who is Korean American, hiring a white actor taping his eyes back and smearing what looks like cheeto dust on his face is just not going to sit well with people.
And I’m still not so good at this, but experience is always fulfilling and this blog is a wonderful way to chart my own growth. I went back and read every post. You can really see my attitude become more and more positive toward sex. I went from going OMG sex toys are CRAZY to … I wonder how hot I would look with this jeweled butt plug in. So I’m still here , still growing, still changing and thank you for hanging with me along the ride.
